I don't know if I mentioned it here (I know I did on my birth board), but my dh has been having some health problems lately, including his feet going numb, extreme lethargy, some blisters that won't heal, jock itch, a whole bunch of things. We went to the Dr last month and finally got the results back today. We were scared it might be an STD (from before me), and were told to take precautions in case it was (which sucks for the TTC!).
As it turns out he has been diagnosed with Diabetes. His fasting glucose number was so high the dr. said he is surprised he is alive, he should have been in diabetic shock. That part is hard to take, that he 'should' be dead. But the good news is that it's manageable. He is on pills for a month to see if that is enough to regulate it (and see if he's type 1 or 2), and if it's regulated enough by metformin and this other drug he should be able to continue on those (for life) and not have to do insulin needles, along with diet & excercise.
I'm kicking myself that I didn't make him go to the dr sooner, now that we look back the signs were there for the last year and we didn't connect the dots. We are in for a massive change in our lives with our diet and lifestyle, and we're signed up for a Diabetes training course to learn how to manage it.
I know I'm rambling, but I just wanted to share what's going on in my life, since it's so huge!
BTW - please don't post anything on Facebook or anything, dh's friends will all see it and I want him to tell people in his own time.
